Reviews

Villa Controni is truly wonderful. We have stayed in other villas in Tuscany and this one (by far) was the best. It is beautifully appointed, big open rooms, gorgeous furnishings, breathtaking grounds/views and a staff that truly worked to meet our every need/request. From the reception at arrival, the owner telling us the villa’s history to our final meal in the main dining area....no detail was missed. You can’t go wrong with Villa Controni.
